Right-wing provocateur Ann Coulter had a meltdown on Thursday as President Donald Trump unveiled his immigration proposal, which was short on specifics and unlikely to go anywhere.

Trump briefly mentioned the border wall during his speech, but he primarily focused on preventing so-called “asylum abuse” and changing the immigration system to prioritize “skilled” applicants.

“What happened to the total immigration moratorium?” Coulter seethed in a series of tweets. “We need a break!”

“If you become VERY proficient at English, @realDonaldTrump, someday you will understand the meaning of the word “WALL,” she continued.

This went on for quite a few tweets.

Trump’s plan doesn’t address the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which the White House said was too “divisive” to include in their plan.

This further incensed Coulter.

“Doing ‘nothing,’ means they get to stay — and yet another year goes by with no enforcement against millions of illegal aliens,” she raged.
